A good review of Society's Genome -- including a Buffy reference!

New Years Eve, 1999: I'm sitting on the roof of my boyfriend's apartment building with a group of other teenagers, gazing out over the Dallas skyline and waiting for the world to go black when we hit Y2K. We'd all heard ad nauseum what would happen if all electronic communications suffered a catastrophic breakdown, but I'd only considered it on a theoretical level. I'm still not sure why, but right about the time we were chanting out "5-4-3" I got truly terrified about what it would mean on a practical level. Game over. For everyone. Everywhere. No law enforcement, healthcare, government oversight, food production or new episodes of Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Happy new year!
